2012 Susana Balbo Malbec

Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful deep violet color with exploding aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and violets framed by hints of oak and mint. The wonderful aromas are mirrored on the palate, and they are joined by ripe plum fruit and a hint of toasty vanilla, bittersweet chocolate, and a hint of mint on the finish. This is a ripe and rich style of wine, reigning in the fruit and focusing it into a long finish. A wine that truly struggles between its fun and serious side. Pairs well with a wide range of foods from beef and pork to game birds or even meat-based pastas. This is what Malbec is all about.

International Wine Cellar 91+ Points

Bright ruby-red.  Sexy aromas of blackberry, huckleberry, violet, mocha and nutty oak.  Suaver and sweeter than the Signature cabernet, with juicy, fruit-driven black plum, blackberry and violet flavors framed by harmonious acidity.  Boasts excellent precision and inner-mouth tension for a wine in this price range.  Finishes with a firm tannic spine, sneaky length and a hint of minty lift.  This is 14.5% alcohol but I never would have guessed.-ST
